Make sure to get your practice in early to get the hang of all the available controls. Beyond the basics of dodging and throwing, you'll want to get good at catching any balls thrown in your direction, since a perfectly timed catch will build a fast relaunch you can use to hit your opponents with!
Passing the ball to a nearby teammate creates a similar benefit, as passed balls will travel faster towards your opponents. Trick shots will help turn the tide in an unforgiving match, and learning how to glide around effortlessly will give you an instant leg up on the other team.
